A delicious and hearty hot sandwich with olive salad - a favorite in New Orleans.

Top Review by Muffin Goddess

I wasn't sure what to expect, since I've never eaten a muffuletta before, but this was really good! I made the olive salad (plus the anchovy, of course -- love 'em!), and I used big sandwich rolls instead of a whole loaf. Loved all the flavors in this! Thanks for posting! Made for The Hot Pink Panthers for ZWT9

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If using home made olive salad, make it by mixing all ingredients together.
  2. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours before assembling sandwich.
  3. Cut bread in half horizontally.
  4. Remove about 1/2 inch of soft white bread from top layer of each half to make room for the filling, starting about 1/2 from sides.
  5. Drain olive salad, reserving liquid.
  6. Brush some of the liquid over cut sides of bread and toast under broiler until just lightly browned.
  7. Brush a little more liquid on toasted sides and layer salami, 1/2 of the olive salad, the cheese, ham and remaining olive salad on bottom half of bread.
  8. Cover with top half of bread and secure with a couple of tooth picks.
  9. Place back in oven for a few minutes to heat all ingredients.
  10. The cheese should just be warm and starting to get soft, but not runny.
  11. Cut into 4 quarters and serve with plenty of napkins.
